My parents keep everything. So, I wasn’t shocked when I saw a 1955 telephone directory in their living room the other day. I love finding genuine things from the period. Mad Men is great and all, but these things aren’t retro inspired, thet are legit. And, I like things that weren’t designy (sp?). It’s a phone book that shows that these types that are thought of as modern and wonderful today, were, really just the types they used. Obviously they were modern types, and that was conscience, but I love the mix of 19th and 20th century on the same page. And, you gotta love 50s illustration.
